Can you picture Richie Incognito playing 'epic dodgeball' at the Pro Bowl?

When players head to Orlando for the Pro Bowl, they won't just be playing in a football game.

They'll also be competing in a skills showdown, featuring an "epic dodgeball" game, drone drop, kick tac toe and more, the NFL announced Friday.

LeSean McCoy, Micah Hyde and Richie Incognito will represent the Buffalo Bills at the Pro Bowl, begging the question of their abilities when it comes to non-football games.

The skills showdown is part of the week of Pro Bowl festivities and will be broadcast on ESPN at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 25. The event will be held at the ESPN’s Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney Resort in Orlando.

The players will be divided into teams led by 2018 Pro Bowl legends captains Jason Taylor, Ladainian Tomlinson, Derrick Brooks and Warrick Dunn. These are some of the events they'll be competing in:

  • Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball: All Pro Bowl players will play dodgeball.
  • Kick Tac Toe: Players will hit a 3x3 grid of targets inside the uprights.
  • Gridiron Gauntlet: A relay race that includes a 40-yard dash with an inflated parachute.
  • Best Hands: Receivers will catch a series of passes at a sequence of downfield targets.
  • Precision Passing: Quarterbacks will attempt to hit targets of varying size and distance.
  • Drone Drop: A player will catch footballs dropped from drones at increasing heights.
